Buckmore Park has witnessed the fledgling talents of Formula One legends Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton, but on June 18th this year it is about to witness three speed demons who together will make their mark in Buckmore Park annals.

Cheered on by their legions of followers it is sure to be a must-see event.

The Cause

Following the exciting and action-packed inaugural Buckmore Park Race Challenge in 2013, the Canterbury Festival team have this year repeated the adrenaline filled Le Mans style endurance race!

According to Canterbury Festival  - Teams of three compete to complete as many laps as they can in 90 minutes, devising their own driver strategy and taking care of their own pit stops. These races are ideal for all, from the complete novice to the experienced racer- it’s all about having fun on four wheels!

As well as all of that, they’re spicing it up a little bit as a way to help bring the Spiegeltent to Canterbury Festival...

Bid For Grid - Who needs qualifying when you can “Bid For Grid”? Each team makes a sealed bid for pole position, with the most generous team gaining those all important few seconds at the start. Who knows, it could be the difference between winning and losing!

Buy your way to victory - If you’re not doing quite as well as you’d hoped, why not buy your way up the order? Not only can you buy extra laps to bump yourself up to the podium, you can also pay to have laps removed from your closest rivals! (But don’t worry – there’ll also be “real” results on the day!)

We are looking forward to sharing the pictures and recounting the event!
